Many Americans, I suspect, would respond with “the Trump administration”and perhaps history will will prove them right, but in the meantime the immediate threat is under-informed, poorly informed, ignorant Americans who are susceptible to political propaganda… who vote.
Guess what Ada, what you paid into Social Security is long gone. That money paid someone else’s benefit years ago and even if it didn’t it would not pay your benefits for very long. Better do a new calculation because those contributions will only last around seven years. Besides, I suspect you don’t know how many “remaining years” you have and while any money you may save has a finite limit, Social Security doesn’t, even in its current state. What you also seem to forget is that Social Security is much more than the worker’s retirement income, much more.
And what you paid into Medicare will pay for one moderately long hospital stay (which I hope you never need to use).
There is no connection between the fiscal state of Social Security and Medicare and the need to fix both and the Republican tax proposals. Those fiscal problems predate Trump by a decade or more. And fixing them has been ignored by both political parties for many years.
